Cooler today, more heat for the weekend


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Thanks to the passage of a cold front through our area yesterday, we're going to enjoy a little break from the intense heat and heavy feeling humidity today, but this situation won't likely last very long.

Low clouds and patchy fog this morning will be common in the local area as some low level moisture from Wednesday's showers remains in the area, but skies will slowly clear from west to east, making for a warmer afternoon with high temperatures in the low to mid 80s.

For many of us, this may be the coolest day of the month so far! Heat will begin to build back into the region tomorrow with highs in the upper 80s expected before low 90s and extra humidity become the rule for the weekend along with small rain chances.

We'll have a few isolated showers and thunderstorms Saturday and Sunday with fairly small rain chances Monday and Tuesday of next week before slightly better chances begin to show up in the midweek with the arrival of what may be a decent cold front from the northwest.
